New reissue of the 6th chronological solo album by Anthony Moore (spelled here as "More" for whatever reason). Blueprint refers to this release as "a hybrid version of previously unreleased tracks and the best versions from the original album". "Anthony Moore began his recording career working in experimental film and music releasing two avant garde solo albums in the early 70s. Polydor Germany refused to release a third project so Anthony teamed up with Dagmar Krausse and Peter Blegvad to form Slapp Happy. Slapp Happy joined forces with German pioneers Faust to release their debut album Sort Of in 1972. By 1974 Slapp Happy had signed to Virgin and acquired a cult following of fans, critics, and musicians such as Henry Cow and Robert Wyatt. Anthony left Slapp Happy in 1975, but Virgin failed to turn him into a pop star. Signing to cutting edge indie label Do-It, he released Flying Doesn't Help in 1979 and World Service in 1981. Similar in style to other mavericks like John Cale and Kevin Ayers with many lyrical twists."
